  • Publication number: 20080060558
    Abstract: This invention provides a stand for a camper that will allow the camper to be used in an elevated position when it is removed from the truck. The stand is to be attached to the bottom of camper. The legs easily fold up to put the camper back on the truck, and fold down when it is off the truck. The legs are designed with axle and angle braces for side-to-side stability, and fold down past the 90-degree angle so the legs will tension the folding braces for front to rear stability. The main frame, which attaches to the camper, is the size of the camper structure that is within the truck box, therefore the stand supports the camper as it would be supported when in the truck box. This stand can be attached as an after market product or could be used as the base for construction of a camper.
